hiatus explained

thank you all for your kind words
i really appreciate them

now the explanation

it got to be a bit overwhelming to think of things to post
and the ones that i did post had a certain tone that i wasn't thrilled with
and most importantly, what got overwhelming was finding myself feeling compelled to read everyone else's blogs and comment on them

so i am embarking on a new journey

i will try to;

write as often as i can
not feel guilty about the "down"
visit other's blogs as often as i can
de-pressurize myself

i'm going to try to let my blog be itself and let them fall where they may

so here's to a new day...

You are so right on. When the Blogahood becomes work or feels like an obligaion, we need to step back. I am sure all will be more than empathetic.

Vencora said...

Yes, exactly. I am stepping back myself, for the same reasons.

Good plan.

Grant said...

I recommend booze as a solution to all your worries.

Who are you again?

Kate said...

I've found the answer to a lot of my struggles is to just let them be themselves. You'll make it.
